      Our Vision


      Giving pupils the best possible outcomes from teachers they will always remember.


      Providing a full immersive school based training experience, applying the latest university led research.


      Offering unique opportunities to develop professionally and share best practice with others across the partnership.


      Nurturing and expanding our network of partners. Building mutual benefits around recruitment and sustainability.


      Being a key player in positively changing education through innovation, collaboration and developing its future leaders.


      We provide a high-quality fully immersive school-based training experience where Trainees join our family and embark on an exciting and ambitious curriculum.

      We work with our network of specially chosen providers who value the innovative and research-led training we deliver year upon year. This means their pupils get the very best Trainees, many of whom achieve full time employment within our partnership.

      Our Lead Tutors, who are current practicing teachers, offer personalised subject support for their Trainees and the hand-picked school-based Mentors across our placement schools. Our positive feedback from Trainees, schools and Ofsted means our partners are proud to work alongside us to invest in the evolution of education.


      Dear potential trainee teacher (that’s you!),

      You will begin your journey immersed in the school life of one of our expert schools across Leeds and its surrounding areas, observing and participating in a creative and innovative teaching and learning environment.

      You will quickly start teaching classes in pairs or individually. Contrasting school placements will allow you to put into practice what you have learnt at your lead school. With your Lead Tutor only having on average four trainees on their subject course, you will receive personalised ‘one to one’ subject and pastoral support. You will work professionally alongside colleagues within a department providing you with the opportunity to learn more about yourself and how you can progress to be the best possible teacher that you can be. You will receive tailored support to develop your subject knowledge for teaching throughout the course.

      Alongside your time in school you will benefit from bespoke university sessions to learn about current research in education and how this will inform you in your classroom practice. As well as gaining Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in your training year, you will have the opportunity to gain a Professional Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) (FHEQ Level 6). You will also achieve up 60 credits towards a Masters (FHEQ Level 7). All awards are from our partner Leeds Trinity University.

      As you can see at Leeds SCITT you get the best of both worlds. Not only do we provide you with a fully immersive school-based training experience, but you will have access to the latest university led research.

      At Leeds SCITT we don’t just teach you to pass a qualification. We ensure that you are holistically prepared, confident and skilled to achieve employment and go on to future leadership roles often within our partnership.
